Nippon Cargo Airlines (NCA) will start twice-weekly Boeing 747-400 freighter flights from its Narita International Airport hub to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW). The service will be the carrier’s first direct trade route to the US airport and boosting the airport’s freight capacity to Asia, according to a press release.

Flights from Japan will reach DFW through Chicago O’Hare International Airport while on the return journey, the freighter will stop at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport. In a press release from DFW, the airport said that Japan’s economic growth had prompted NCA to launch new flights.
